1998 Quality Of Life Survey - Orleans And Jefferson Parishes, Susan E. Howell Dec 1998

Survey Research Center Publications

For the first time in the ten-year Quality of Life series, negative views of life in New Orleans declined, and positive evaluations increased, although the majority still believes that the City is in decline.

The Origins Of Greek Cypriot National Identity, Elena Koumna Dec 1998

The Origins Of Greek Cypriot National Identity, Elena Koumna

Master's Theses

Discussions of Greek Cypriot identity have conventionally been dominated by primordial arguments, contributing to the creation and maintenance of stereotypes and mythologies about the ethnic conflict between Greek and Turkish Cypriots. In order to examine the validity of the primordial thesis, modernist and constructionist approaches on nationalism and identity are considered (Gellner 1983; Hobsbawm 1990; Anderson 1991; Hroch 1985; Smith 1991). Nationalism and identity formation are analyzed in the context of"stages," where the social composition of each stage and the degree of modernization are examined. The findings of the thesis largely support the hypotheses that pinpoint the articulation of ...
